Kind is a relatively new project but is lighter weight than minkube to setup Pixie in your local environment. Here are the steps:

Install Kind

Install v1.6.0+ as described here: install kind

Note: The install places Kind in the $(go env GOPATH)/bin. You may need to add that directory to your $PATH as shown here if you encounter the error kind: command not found after installation.

Create Cluster

Run kind create cluster while ensuring that the K8s version deployed is supported by Pixie.


Run kubectl get namespaces or a comparable command to verify your cluster is no and running.
